Dean for America Feeds: cutting edge tech for the Dean campaign (Dean is running for president in the US. Anything better than Bush I say).
Makes me think of the possibilities for NGO’s. From what I’ve seen, almost none of the NGO’s have much technical sophistication in their use of internet technologies. Some sites are pretty decent (good content), but almost all lack basics like RSS, and few take advantage of the net’s capabilities to connect people.
I’m thinking of writing something for NGO’s about the potential of the internet for their various missions, with plenty of examples. Any pointers to NGO’s (or grassroots organizations) making efficient use of the net and new technologies like RDF, RSS and such are very welcome (especially if the NGO is working outside of the US).
